most of nanjing was great because of the lack of other tourists, this temple was one of those spots. The ancient appearance and authenticly preserved building is remarkable.

We have visited lots of temples across China and Jiming was just ok. Did not feel the spiritual prescense of some of the other temples. The view of the lake and purple mountain from the back of the property is beautiful. Not a must see.

Fortunately we visited this temple before we got all "templed out" so we thoroughly enjoyed it. So worth the climb up all the stairs to see this truly beautiful place. The incense is a nice gesture and the views are great. We actually ate at...More

This temple is amazing. The path of stairs that take you from bottom to the top is great. At each stop you can take some great pictures and enjoy the scenery. Also, at the entrance you get scented sticks which can be lighted up.
